Bar Camp 8 will be held on CPCC's Central Campus Pease Auditorium October 26th, 2013.The name BarCamp is a playful allusion to the event’s origins, with reference to the programmer slang term, foobar: BarCamp arose as an open-to-the-public alternative to Foo Camp, which is an annual invitation-only participant-driven conference hosted by Tim O’Reilly.
The first BarCamp was held in Palo Alto, California, from August 19–21, 2005, in the offices of Socialtext. It was organized in less than one week, from concept to event, with 200 attendees. Since then, BarCamps have been held in over 350 cities around the world, in North America, South America, Africa, Europe, the Middle East, Australasia and Asia. Attendees have often traveled internationally to attend BarCamps.
A BarCamp is a community-organized democratic event and typically centers around tech and innovation. BarCamp Charlotte has had seven (7) successful events with over 250 attendees. BarCamp brings out the best and brightest in the tech, arts, startups, tech, media, investing, marketing and computer fields.
